Dr. Frist Lies on ‘Today Show’ about His Video Diagnosis of Schiavo

Dr. Frist on the “Today Show” on June 16, 2005 – from Think Progress:

LAUER: But when you stood on the floor and you said, She does respond, are you at all worried that you led some senators…

FRIST: I never said, She responded. I said I reviewed the court videotapes – the same ones the other doctors reviewed – and I questioned, Is her diagnosis correct?

Frist on Senate Floor, 3/17/05:

I have looked at the video footage. Based on the footage provided to me, which was part of the facts of the case, she does respond.

More from Frist, 3/17/05:

She certainly seems to respond to visual stimuli…

And so then Lauer goes, “Oh yes, Doctor. I’m sure you’re right. My mistake….” [Rest is unintelligible as Lauer jumps up Frist’s butt.]
